"Trump has launched a heinous adventure of irresponsible attack on the Congressman Ilhan Omar, who shares a propaganda video calling into question the loyalty of Congressmen to the United States, "reads the petition description. "This is more dangerous than ever. Representative Omar receives countless death threats as the President of the United States incites violence against a black Muslim congressman, endangering his life.
The petition, which urges Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to "defeat Trump's hated video and suspend his account permanently," has collected more than 9,000 signatures since its launch on Saturday night.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y.), and Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren were among several Democrats who condemned the President's controversial video.
"Members of Congress are required to respond to today's explicit attack by the President. @ IlhanMN's life is in danger. For our colleagues, silence is a conspiracy for the direct and dangerous direction of a member of Congress, "tweeted Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday night. "We have to comment. "First, they came …"

They will continue to monitor and respond to the threats they face, "Pelosi said.

Despite repeated calls and petitions alleging that Trump violated the Twitter guidelines, the social media platform has rejected all action against its report.
In a January 2018 blog post, the company – without mentioning Trump – stated why it was called the world leaders do not adhere to the same standards as private individuals.
"Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing his controversial tweets conceals important information that people should see and debate," the company wrote. "It would not silence this leader either, but it would certainly hamper the necessary discussion of their words and actions."
In an August 2018 interview with Buzzfeed, Dorsey basically made the same argument, even though he seemed to call the president obvious. If he attacks a private citizen, he might cross a threshold of vulnerability.
"I do not believe that private citizens deserve more protection from public figures, but this must be done in the context where we actually see our global leaders," said the CEO.
In this interview, Vijaya Gadde, Twitter's legal, political, trust, and security leader, was not as forgiving as a world leader on Twitter could say.
"I think if you ask me very directly, how is everything the President says part of the public interest? "I would say no, but if you ask me what is not, I think it will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis based on our criteria," Gadde told Buzzfeed. "I agree that it is subjective and differentiated, and I would like to create more framework conditions, so that we have a more consistent way to enforce further action."
